- This is the first episode to feature an eyecatch.
- The eyecatches for this episode are references to the video games, Megaman (known as Rockman in Japan) & Street Fighter.
- The second segment in this episode is a parody of the 2004 horror film, SAW.
- When the episode was re-aired on satellite stations, it underwent a few alterations due to copyright concern over SAW, as well as complaints sent to TV Tokyo by viewers upset over the Anpanman parody:
- The letters OAW were changed to OSO, along with the blood dropping effect removed.
- Dekapan-Man's title card was changed to a pink background with the Dekapan-Man logo.
- Dekapan-Man's rosy cheeks and nose were also removed, and the color of his cape changed from red to blue, to make him less like Anpanman.
- The karinto had been changed from brown to pink, to remove the poop joke and make it look more like a diamond.
- The golden ball (a joke on "kintama"/testicles) had been changed to a baseball to remove the innuendo.
- The Dekapan-Man skits were later entirely cut from streaming broadcasts, and removed from the Blu-Ray release in light of the controversy. They were replaced by a new segment titled "Realistic Matsu" for the Blu-Ray.
